Levellers Log - Worlebury
The Levellers travelled to Worlebury on Saturday on yet another beautiful summers day. It was very warm with a strong wind blowing and the only green on the course was the actual greens - everywhere else was scorched and a parched brown which made the course even more tricky.
The home side rode their luck and finished 3 - 2 winners with two of the Levellers losses only by 1 hole. Captain Load and Slocombe managed to lose their game despite going up the 17th 1 up and both having a shot only to hit their balls out of bounds and then lose the 18th to a par - very frustrating!
Winning pairs were Chris Binding/Martin Abbott and the captains "bankers" John English and Mick Raine.
The final score was 8pts to 6pts.
The Levellers entertained Brean B at home on a lovely sunny and very warm day on Sunday.
The golf played by the Levellers was as good as the weather and ran out very comfortable winners 4 - 1. The only loss was by Captain Load and his unfortunate partner Tim Forward who lost to a very good par on the 18th - 1 down!
The course was in superb condition and the Brean players were very complimentary.
This Saturday sees the return fixture against the B side and will be looking for a better result.
Long Sutton Levellers and The Long Sutton Stags "clashed" in Division 5 of the Avalon League on May 19th and the Stags narrowly won 3 & 2.
It was a close fought contest played in lovely conditions and on quickly improving greens.The 3 & 2 result gave The Stags a healthy 11 - 4 points haul
and skipper Load hopes the result will swing the Levellers way when the two sides meet again on June 9th.
The Levellers entertained Minehead B in the return fixture on Saturday in glorious weather on great greens and the course looked in really good condition.
The Levellers team responded in great fashion to the Captains stirring pre match team talk "play better or you're dropped" as 3 pairs won 5 & 4, one pair 4 & 3 and the only loss was down to a 25' foot putt on the 18th!
The result of 4 - 1 mirrored the away result and gives The Levellers a well deserved 10 - 3 points win.
Levellers Log - 6th May
The Levellers were brought down to earth with a bump following the previous weeks great win at Minehead.
The weather was glorious and the course at Cricket St Thomas was in good shape. Although the greens were true, they were on the slow side.
Rob Ford and Nigel Griffiths both played excellent golf and returned with an impressive 4&3 win. This was the highlight of the day as the following 4 pairs all lost by margins ranging from a sound thrashing 8 & 7, 3 & 2 (twice) and a 2 & 1.
Head teacher's report is " must try harder" in the future - especially against The Stags in two weeks time!
Levellers Log - 28th April 2018
The Levellers travelled to play Minehead and West Somerset B team on Saturday. The weather was chilly but thankfully with very little wind.
First out was Nigel Griffiths & Rob Ford who despite playing good pairs golf lost 4&3. The new pairing of Nick Stacey & Geoff Monks played some solid golf and returned with a fine 3&2 win. Rob Load and Ruben Stacey had a tussle with the scoring going either way but finally they managed to scramble a win by just the single hole.
Graham Load and Chris Slocombe somehow managed to throw away 3 holes over the last 4 to come away with a half when victory was in sight!
The Captains banking pair of Johnny English and Mick Raine sailed majestically over the golf course to finish winners 4&3.
The final points tally was Minehead 3 The Levellers 12.5 - and only the second time they have lost at home in three years - a great start to the new season.
